Help! It's homecoming week at my daughters high school and on Wednesday the seniors get to wear togas........can anyone give me advice on the best way to tie a toga out of bedsheet? I'm doing a google search but thought it couldn't hurt to ask here! Thanks!
Rent "Animal House" Just kidding. Pete is chanting "Toga,Toga". I believe that it is draped over the left shoulder and tied around the waist with a belt. A large double bed sheet works well. White shorts to be worn underneath. Am remembering college days of toga parties. Sandals are a must. A plain white T shirt also makes a good top.
I think real Roman dominae used a brooch/clasp to secure the garment near one shoulder. It has been a long time since I studied the culture.
And before you send her off to school in her toga, look lovingly in her eyes and tell her: "Antiquis temporibus, nati tibi similes in rupibus ventosissimis exponebantur ad necem."
Translation: In the good old days, kids like you would be left exposed on the windiest crags for disposal.
Yes, I'm just kidding. I'm sure she'll look lovely. Seriously consider a Victorian type brooch--they tend to be neo-classical--reinforced with a hidden saftey pin. I think it should be near the left shoulder.
